In this talk, which is based on a collaboration with John Halstead, Hauke makes the case against randomista development, a form of development economics which evaluates and promotes interventions that can be tested by randomised controlled trials. He argues that research on and advocacy for economic growth in low-income countries is more effective than randomista development interventions, and that assessing the soundness of these arguments should be a key focus for current generation-focused EAs over the next few years.
